On June 16th I’m presenting BPM and Case Management: US Healthcare Wants You, But May Not Know It, Yet at the BPM & Case Management Global Summit (archive) here in DC. I hope to meet you and talk shop! I’ll be tweeting about my presentation and the conference, so I hope we can “tweet shop” too!
P.S. An offering to the search engine gods…
BPM and Case Management: US Healthcare Wants You, But May Not Know It, Yet
Charles Webster, MD, President, EHR Workflow, Inc.
Healthcare processes are mess, no matter whether structured and repeatable or unstructured and one-of-a-kind problem solving and interaction among knowledge workers. One third of an almost three trillion dollar economy is estimated to be wasted due to inadequately managed clinical and administrative workflow and processes. How is traditional health IT failing to solve these problems? How can business process management and case management (BPM/CM) help? What are ten obstacles slowing diffusion of process-aware information system into healthcare? How can we eliminate, reduce, and circumvent these enemies of healthcare workflow progress? These and other questions will be answered, to help you, a BPM/CM vendor, gain audiences with, and prove your worth to, health IT professionals, managers, and decision-makers.
